Rarely do we meet twice a month, those who read last week’s blog will recall the extreme wet weather, postponing serious work on steps up to Rodge Hill for a week. Thus it was that on 23rd 18 new steps were added to this very steep slope. Rival groups vied to do the best work with much muttering from those at the bottom protesting they were making good the work of those at the top (of the hill). Jan popped in with welcome coffee as the weather had greyed up and it was quite chilly. In addition to these steps, the narrow and slippy path out of the quarry behind Quarry Farm was widened.
POURING with rain. email the team–call it off for today, book for next week. OK come over for a bacon butty. Three turned up, weather brightened up. Meet in Quarry Lane for a wheelbarrow walk up the hill to the ridge to drop off steps and stakes for next week. Not often in this area, like it. Ah ha Jonny Corbett and big son Andy. You missed out on the bacon butty JC. Crikey did we never hear the end of that? Never mind buy him a drink at the Crown next Friday. Lovely views East to the Cotswolds over a sunny, misty, freshly wet, autumn countryside. What a pleasure. Oh DO give over JC.
